McAL Centre, Rodney Road, Endeavour,
Bocas CineLit begins today, and runs April
18-30. A festival within a festival -- because
the best films are from books! CineLit
celebrates the remarkably rich heritage of
both literature and film from our hemispheric
neighbours and commemorates the life and
work of the Nobel Laureate, poet Sir Derek
Walcott. There are dozens of feature films
and documentaries, including adaptations
of beloved literary classics from across Latin
America and the Caribbean --- many of them
award-winning films, and most of them
making their T&T debut. All non-English films
are screened with English subtitles, with the
exception of the film La ciudad y los perros
(The Time of the Hero).
The festival is hosted by the NGC Bocas Lit
Fest, in partnership with the University of
the West Indies (UWI) and the embassies of
Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica,
Cuba, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador,
Mexico, Panama, Peru, Spain and Venezuela.
